One woman always sports formfitting dresses or shirts. She's dripping wet in a scene. And we also see her in lingerie. Curly's pet rat crawls down her front.

A number of other women wear low-cut outfits as well.

One of the nuns shows up at a pool party wearing a wimple and a very revealing bikini-like swimsuit.

A male hospital attendant flirts with Curly who's wearing a nurse's dress as a disguise.

Moe runs a whirling chainsaw along Curly's cranium. Instead of hurting Curly, the chainsaw blades are destroyed

Curly bumps a guy into the street where he's hit by a bus, snagged and scrubbed along the roadway by a street sweeper, hopped on by a kid with a Pogo stick and impaled in the knee (really!) by an arrow that Larry had launched into the air earlier.

A man accidentally steps on a woman's face and breasts (which make a comical honking sound) while climbing over a fence.

The Stooges manhandle guys hospitalized in full-body casts, sticking dynamite inside the cast of one.

When a hospital guard is knocked out, Moe calls for crash cart paddles to revive him. But Larry accidentally hands him two hot clothes irons that he proceeds to plant on the guy's bare chest. The guard appears alter, with the burn marks briefly yet clearly shown.

Larry plugs the blowhole of a dolphin with a peanut, causing the animal to gasp for air. When Curly gives the marine mammal the Heimlich maneuver, the peanut shoots out like a bullet and careens off the scrotum of a nearby lion, causing that animal to fly into a rage.

We later see a guy's face (who had climbed over a fence into the lion cage and taunted the lion) decorated with a claw mark.

Six religious exclamations; and much childish name calling.

A nun says our Lord and Savior made a woman barren.

A man says, "Fosters is Australian for beer."

People are shown at a party drinking alcoholic beverages, and Larry drinks directly from a champagne fountain.


Note some Catholics were offended by the depiction of nuns on the film.

Rated PG for slapstick action violence, some rude and suggestive humor including language
